A Note from the President 

Lydia Yamashiro

Hello and welcome to the Miami University Panhellenic website!


I am delighted that you have taken a step to learn more about the Panhellenic Association at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. I'm so honored to have the opportunity to lead a community of 17 National Panhellenic Council sororities and 2 associate chapters this year. 


This community astounds me with their dedication and commitment to scholarship, philanthropy, leadership development, community involvement, and sisterhood. Panhellenic women strive to achieve in all aspects of life. What an empowering group of women to be surrounded by! I am reminded daily of the incredible work this community is doing, both within and outside of their organization, to better themselves and the world around them. 


Growing up in a family who is not Greek, I never imagined that I would be so lucky to immerse myself in a community like this one. In joining Greek life, I have found home in a community that pushes me to work harder and to live authentically, and my hope is that you find this too. 


If you are at all interested in becoming a member of this community, I could not encourage you enough to register for recruitment and see what it's all about. Becoming a Panhellenic woman has changed countless lives over the years. 


Thank you to those who are members of Panhellenic, your dedication is noticed and highly appreciated. I hope to make you all proud. Go Greek!


Love and Honor,

Lydia Yamashiro

2021 Panhellenic President
